More cheap HP TouchPads heading to the shops
WARNING: It transpires that the information in this story relates only to the USA. Sorry non-USA readers. WARNING ENDS.
If you’re still licking your wounds at having missed out on a cut-price HP TouchPad last week, there’s still some hope for you. That’s because HP have announced there’ll be one last batch of the tablets released into the market soon, presumably fashioned from bits of components that they’ve still got lying around the place.
"The speed at which [the TouchPad] disappeared from inventory has been stunning," says Mark Budgell, of HP's PR team,. "We have decided to produce one last run of TouchPads to meet unfulfilled demand. We don't know exactly when these units will be available or how many we'll get, and we can't promise we'll have enough for everyone. We do know that it will be at least a few weeks before you can purchase."
HP have said that none of the tablets will be available through their business sales network, leading us to believe that another mass retail bunfight will be occurring sooner or later.
As ever, keep ‘em peeled at Bitterwallet and HotUKDeals for all the info about how to get one of these defunct but cheap gadgets.
